Handwritten Torahs being repaired at B'nai Zion

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

The scrolls at B'nai Zion are being repaired and it's quite the feat.

The group has 10 Torah scrolls all handwritten.

But officials say some places of writing are darker than others and need retouching.

One rabbi tells Channel 3 if one letter is not clear, then entire scroll cannot be read.

The Torah is the word of God for them.

Rabbi Susan Tendler, B'nai Zion, "Anything you care for tremendously, keep inbest care. Polish, but it's that which you care the most about."

Tendler says they will be repairing Torahs for the next 2 years.
